The Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill will present the East Coast theatrical premiere of “Remembering the Artist: Robert De Niro Sr.” tomorrow at 6 p.m. Terrie Sultan, director of the museum, will lead a Q & A with Geeta Gandbhir, the film’s director, after the screening. Tickets are $10, free for members, children, and students.
Mr. De Niro’s work was celebrated during the 1940s and ’50s with paintings that blended abstract and expressionist styles with representational subject matter. In the late ’50s and ’60s, traditional painting fell out of fashion, and De Niro never matched his early success.
Directed by Perri Peltz and Ms. Gandbhir, the film features the artist’s son, Robert De Niro, the actor, whose reflections about his father create a portrait of a complex man. The Parrish is organizing a retrospective of De Niro’s paintings for the fall of 2015.
In its first collaboration with the Bridgehampton Chamber Music Festival, the Parrish will present a one-hour concert with Brooklyn Rider, a string quartet that combines an eclectic repertoire with a gripping performance style, Saturday at 9 p.m. The program will include the Haydn string quartet nicknamed “The Rider”; the world premiere of “Bradbury Studies” by Gabriel Kahane, based on his larger work, “Bradbury (304 Broadway)”; “Garden,” from the composer Evan Ziporyn’s larger work “Qi,” and three selections from the Brooklyn Rider Almanac.
Seating will be cabaret-style in the Lichtenstein Theater. Tickets are $35, $30 for members, and may be purchased at parrishart.org.
